Certification or Offer of Employment
Trade certification in Canada falls under provincial jurisdiction. Each province outlines which professions are going to be regulated and establish regulatory bodies where applicable. Provincial certification is commonly difficult to get from outside Canada and accordingly this program is most beneficial to tradespeople who obtain an approved offer of employment from a recognized employer, or who are already working in Canada as temporary foreign workers. Not all trades are regulated altogether by the provinces. Where a trade isn't regulated, a proposal of employment becomes mandatory.
Tradespeople who obtain an approved offer of employment for one year or more in their trade from a Canadian employer is eligible to use. The offer of employment is going to be evaluated to confirm that it's an eligible trade which the hiring will have a neutral effect on the Canadian Labour Market.
